I Looked for You

search

In hotel rooms
Lit by harvest moons
And solo roadtrip tunes
I looked for you.
Walked those carpets
Seas of faces
Raucous shouts
And in the empty spaces
I looked for you.
Knocks at my door
Rejected for
The one who’s more
I looked for you.
Not always right
No shining knight
Still lost some fights
While I looked for you.
Their fake sympathy
Fawning syncope
Forget it
’cause when it’s you and me
(dams broken free)
How I’ll hold you
Will be
Worth it
And in the quiet
(my inner riot)
You’ll read my silence
And we’ll both see
How I looked for you
While you looked for me.
